Student Poems:

I am an apple

I am the apple
That sits in the trees.
You may take a bite,
But don't eat my seeds.

Hungry Kitty

I write a poem
I write it well
I read my poem
And think it's swell
I like to eat
It makes me fat
In fact I look
Just like my cat
I prance around
Like I'm a thing
That does that whole
Prancing around.... thing
My poem is done
Yes its through
I want to eat
How about you?

Dreams of Many

Your loving embrace
And your sweet scent
Caressing my face.
When I'm near you
I feel so strong
Like nothing could ever
Go so wrong.
The problems of life
They all drift away
I'm wishing this bliss
Will always stay.
Your peaceful presense
Cleansing my soul
Getting rid of the troubles
That have taken their toll.
I have found my muse!
Which has given me life
Freeing me of the chains
Of doubt, worry, and strife.
If love grew wings
Then I could fly
Fly to the heavens
With you by my side.
So take me away
From this life filled with fear.
Please take me fast
So we may always be near.

Forgiveness Never Comes

So many feelings
Such little time
Too many questions
I need time to unwind.
The world is unstable
Theres just too much change
Emotions keep coming
This hurt and this rage.
My heart, it's been broken
There's scars everywhere
But this new harsh blow
It's just too much to bear.
I feel as though its my fault
That this hand I have dealt
No words can describe
The awful pain that I've felt.
Damn these cursed feelings!
Why wont they go away?
They just keep coming back
Haunting me day after day.
If I could just say I'm sorry
If I could undo whats been done
Maybe you could still love me
And we'd be happy like everyone.
But such dreams are lies
Which I know will never be
So this one thing I ask of you,
Find it in your heart to forgive me.

Oh My 12oz Soda Can

Small strange thing,
Which sits within my hand.
Your label here states
You're from a foreign land.

Little aluminum can,
You are so very shiny.
The very thought of you
Makes me a tad bit whiny.

Oh my little soda,
How very sweet you taste,
And though you can cause cavities,
You shall not go to waste.

My little Dr. Pepper
With your letters oh so bright,
When my tummy calls on you,
You come with all your might.

O' my 12OZ soda can,
Please never go away,
You'll stay so cold and tasty,
And in my fridge you'll always stay!

I should have known

I should have known
That things would go bad.
My life would crash to pieces
And I'd lose all I had.
I should have known
Things were not right.
That my world was crumbling,
And I should've held tight.
I should have known,
I'd drown in my sorrow.
That yesterday was awful,
Just like tomorow.
I should have known
That it was a lie.
The hopes, the dreams,
Just like tomorow.
I should have known
It was not to be.
This joy, this happiness,
Was not meant for me.
I should have known
This pain never ends.
Its a deadly cycle
That dies and starts again.
I'm lost forever
And found for all time.
Living in my misery
Paying for my crime.
